The Deoband Yoruba Collaborative Project (also known as DYCP) is a collaborative project between the Deoband Community Wikimedia and the Yoruba Wikimedians User Group. The project aims to include content related to global Deobandi scholarship on the Yoruba language Wikipedia, and also the inclusion of "Yoruba-related" content on Urdu Wikipedia. The project was formally given green signals on 25 June 2022, through an interactive session, in which Aafi and Olatunde Isaac participated.
